Butelka 330ml. Ciemny mahoniowy kolor (sic!). Piana biala mala szybko opadajaca. W zapachu karmel potem szyszki i cytrusy. W smaku podobnie duzo karmelu i ciastek . Wszystkie tak typowe dla IPY smaki I zapachy zostaly w tym piwie stlumione przez dziwny posmak karmelowo-chemiczny . Bardzo ostre i ciezkie na finiszu dziwna gorycz dlugo utrzymuje sie w ustach. Dziwne...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 Aroma is perfume sweet. Almost expecting to dip into a Corona "it’s frothy man". The red colour continues this expectation. The hopping is heavy but to be honest I would have preferred a fresher hop flavour and less bittering. Very harsh on the palate. If you have ulcers they will rip pen with each sip. Something artificial about this flavour.

Aroma is floral and hoppy with a touch of caramel. Nice taste. The fruity caramel sweetness balances well against the dryness of the hop.
